Rumbatraciens

Rumbatraciens is a french netlabel. Rumbatraciens is also a play on word : rumba (rumba, cha-cha, tango or whatever you could dance on) + batraciens (which, in french, means... guess what... yes, batrachians) ! Finally, it is the name of a track from a Palo Alto LP (not the american rock band, but the 'new music' french band !) Rumbatraciens is a collective of artists : musicians, graphists and writers. The netlabel wishes to be a platform for artists we like. Members of the collective or not. It was founded in the year 2004 and that means, yeah, we're still babies et we're wearing nappies ! You can check out our site for more information. (and front / back cover for each EP / LP.)

Chenard Walcker is the self-proclaimed Pope of samplecore, or, to put it simply, of musical cut-n-paste. Within a few years, he became a legend in the netlabel scene thanks to his prolific and virtuoso collages. He offers here 'Homme-grenouille' (Literally 'Frog-man', French for Scuba-diver), a 8 track EP, whose theme is as close as possible to the name of the label, rumbatraciens (rumbatrachians, do I have to repeat) Enjoy !

Djet (aka Alexander Lisovsky) is architect by formation but works now in design, scenography and music. He lives in Moscow and writes electronic experimental music since 2002. More specifically, he prefers to say that he draws music, using organic noises and sounds, instead of a pencil or a brush. His interests are in the synthesis of contrasts, rhythm and asymmetry. This album has been written in one go and without essential subsequent corrections... He went through it as in the writing of a...

"a-plastification" plays. First with words : "a" as a privative affix or as an indefinite article ; next with sounds (from crystal-clear to dull, between harmony and dissonance, from repetitive concrete music to jazz). This original duet (a franco-italian contemporary jazz pianist at the prepared piano and a japanese sound designer at the electroacoustic device) implicitly asks the eternal question raised by electronic or computerised music : plastic surgery that freezes and...

Denis Frajerman is a member of Palo Alto, a trendy "new music" french band whose first album appeared back in 1990. At that time they were inspired by modern compositional school, but were also interested in european traditional music, french chansons, improvisation and experimental mood. After seven albums with Palo Alto and seven solo albums (more to come), Denis Frajerman is still exploring the territories of electroacoustic improvisations. His last work, Vociférations, was aired...
